Edgings Using Soluble Fabric

25th October 2013

I think I have finished Unit 4!!

I have used organza for my edging with soluble fabric and it has been a learning curve!
I didn't allow enough soluble fabric around the edge of the organza on my first two samples and it was very difficult to hold the fabric while I was free machining.


Threads, fabric and soluble fleece..




...the soluble fleece has been dissolved in warm running water..



..not very good...


I used one of my soldering iron pieces....


..slightly better!!





I remembered to do a straight stitch then over stitch with a close zigzag..


..this might be an edging for a scarf.

I only need to put these into my sketchbook then can parcel up for Anne!
